Abstract: This study summarizes inter-regional issues and projects identified through DVRPC staff outreach to adjacent metropolitan planning organizations and counties with the goal of achieving cooperative solutions. A study advisory committee was formed to help guide the study process and to initiate discussion on proposed coordination, communication and cooperation techniques, issue and project priorities and other potential collaborative activities. Tables and maps that summarize county-level demographic and travel information for the broader study area (year 2000 and 2020 forecasts) are included in the report. Examples of successful formal, informal and ad hoc inter-regional cooperation initiatives are also summarized. The Planning at the Edge initiative will be continued through a follow-up DVRPC project in Fiscal Year 2004.

Key Words: inter-regional, coordination, cooperation, issues, projects, priorities, metropolitan planning organization (MPO), transportation, land use, long-range plans, transportation improvement program (TIP), study advisory committee (SAC), cross boundary
